Adelaide-based IT services provider Chamonix IT Management Consulting has scored an $8 million contract with the Australian Digital Health Agency (ADHA).
The contract is to develop and support a Health Identifier and PCEHR System (HIPS, and a PCHER is a Personally Controlled Electronic Health Record).
HIPS is a My Health Record (MHR) integration software that is owned by ADHA. The software is used by hospitals and private diagnostic providers to connect to the national My Health Record infrastructure.
An ADHA spokesperson told CRN that Chamonix was picked out from an open tender process.
Chamonix was founded in 2010 in Adelaide and was a CRN Fast50 lister in 2014 due to its work with Microsoft, achieving Gold Partner status in 2012. The company also has an office in Brisbane, which opened in 2016.
Last week, iTnews reported that the ADHA paid $360,000 to nine specialist software vendors, or $40,000 each, to integrate their clinical systems with My Health Record. The partnership aims to boost the use of the e-health record system by medical specialists like cardiologists and anaesthetists.
